A proud Scanel tradition was continued when electrical apprentice Rasmus Repo Kjærgaard completed his 3½-year apprenticeship and was immediately hired as our newest fully-qualified marine electrician. Rasmus was presented with his apprenticeship graduation certificate and signed his employment contract at the same ceremony at Scanel headquarters in Frederikshavn.

’Grateful’ maiden voyage

’Grateful’ maiden voyage
A fond farewell: the stunning Scottish trawler 'Grateful' has left on its maiden voyage. The 70m vessel was built at Karstensens Shipyard in Skagen for the Whyte Family/Eshcol Fishing Company. The Scanel Marine and Engineering teams are proud to have carried out the electrical work on this beautiful, ultra-modern vessel.

Superb safety record offshore

Superb safety record offshore

Our QHSE department has just calculated the latest statistics for Scanel Offshore work. From the first Scanel offshore assignment in 2008 to date, Scanel staff have worked a total of 422,000 hours offshore.

QHSE keeps a careful record of Offshore LTI/LTA – time lost to incident or accident. Out of 422,000 hours to date, the total number of working hours lost = 0.

Well done to all our colleagues on offshore oil, gas and wind energy projects on maintaining that remarkable safety record.

"Building ships up North is cool"

"Living up North is cool - and building ships is cool." We agree with our talented colleague Lene Nielsen, one of the stars of a new campaign to attract even more talented staff and their families to Northern Jutland - the 'top of Denmark'.

Together with other employers in the region, Scanel International is supporting the Municipality of Frederikshavn's 'Move North' recruitment campaign. 60,000 people of 117 nationalities live in the thriving Frederikshavn region. It includes Frederikshavn Town and the fishing port of Skagen, where Scanel has sites.

A welder in our Service Department at the Orskov Group shipyard in Frederikshavn, Lene is one of three local stars of the recruitment campaign - for more on the advantages of living and working up North, see her in the Move North video and visit the Move North website.
